Great music most nights. Unfortunately people smoke in no smoking clearly marked units. Howeversecucatctryscrerespond

This quiet resort is a comfy 3 star contrast to the upscale resort next door and upscale shops and restaurants that are just a short, lovely walk along the beach. The rooms are comfortable and clean, the staff was very friendly, the grounds are spacious and pretty, the extensive beach is gorgeous, and the public bus nearby can take you to bustling city and Harbor in about 20 minutes. There are a lot of amenities on site, and the location is excellent. This resort claims to be the true Hawaiian resort, and if amenity shacks on the grounds with palm frond roofs are their criteria, this is true. A great value.

Loved the welcome breakfast! It was nice getting a run down of things to do around the island and get to know other guests

Close to the beach, shops, restaurants, etc. Also had a lot of rental options such as chairs, surfboards, sup boards, coolers, snorkel gear, etc.

It was absolutely amazing! The room was a bit dated though. Other than that, perfection.

Loved how close the beach was everything was really nice but the staff at the tiki grill were always rude.

Very good hotel for the money.... Steps away from the beach and super nice staff.... Definitely would stay there again!

Rode out hurricane lane, the staff and facilities made it as pleasurable and seemless experience as can be. Information and communication of the event was forthcoming and correct. The hotel staff were empathetic, accommadating and helpful to guests all around. Mahalo, and well be back soon.

The parking spaces in the ramp were extremely narrow and frequently filled up. They were difficult to navigate and at $12 per day, a bad deal.

A very pleasant and authentic Maui hotel. Great experience.

Great location. Right on the beach. Ask the valet boys for cheap food recommendations versus paying more for meals. They know all the good places to eat.

Every member of the staff was very friendly and made us feel at home. The room was spacious and clean with a stunning view if the garden and pool

Location is ideal. Minute walk to beach from hotel room. Family friendly - great kids program. Room was just ok, but staff and location make up for it. My 9 year son says, “staff were the best and they were nice.”

First time in Maui, and loved it! KBH had a lot to do with it, great experience and will definitely come back here. The food at the hotel was the only that we didn’t love, but overall great experience. Thank you for everything.

Housekeeping does a wonderful job cleaning the rooms. Parking is convenient and close to rooms. The pool is clean. Super close to the beach, 2 min walk from room to beach! Staff is friendly. Beds are comfy. The hotel is close to Whaler's Village (10 min walk), Lahaina (10 min drive) and Honolua Bay (15 min drive). Loved it!

We had a wonderful time in Maui, and this hotel did the job. It was well priced, had everything we needed, had a great view of the ocean, and was very close to the local shops and dining. Beyond that, it was nothing special. Neither extremely nice and new, nor was it dirty in any way.

nice hotel, very clean property. great beach access.

Great location. Walkable to Whaler's village and other Kaanapali resorts. Right next to the black rock.

Everything was wonderful for our 2nd stay in Maui, both times our anniversary. This hotel is older, not real fancy but is great for all of our needs. Staff is wonderful. Has highly music until 9. Was greatly disappointed with Luau they offered. If you have never been to a Luau do not go to this one. Was greatly misrepresented by welcome breakfast speaker. Pay and go to one in Lahaina or elsewhere.

terrible parking ramp

The parking spaces in the ramp were extremely narrow and frequently filled up. They were difficult to navigate and at $12 per day, a bad deal.
